***YAWN*** Happy New Year!

Lots of fireworks around here last night, and something I hadn't noticed in previous New Year's Eves.....gunfire!

Drove the dog nuts, and I had to give her a couple of Benadryls to get her calmed down.

I just hope the "people" shooting off guns were shooting them into the ground.

Every time I heard somebody start to dump a magazine, I'd start counting shots.

EVERY time it was 15 shots or 17 shots. Every. Single. Time.

So, hey's that "High Capacity Magazine" ban working out for you? Pretty good, huh?

And I could have sworn I heard somebody rip off a string of shots in full-auto.

Considering were only a mile or so South of infamous North Long Beach, it was probably a banger bangin' away....


  1. Sounds like you're being given a 17-round salute on your way back to America.

    1. Hah! I hadn't thought of it that way, but I hope you're right!

    1. Sure hope so. After my wife retires in June, at the end of the school year, we'll get shifted into high gear to buy a place in Fort Collins, sell this house, and get outta SoCal!

  3. When I was in school in Tempe AZ, I was riding my bike home one night and someone mag dumped on full auto. I could hear brass tinkling as it hit the street...

    Head down and peddles spinning after that!



Keep it civil, please....
